Got mine early! Woo Hoo! My dealer did a trade with another dealer who wanted an RT and got a GS out of the deal that was almost exactly what I was looking for (got wire wheels although I hadn't ordered them, but I don't regret it), and nearly 2 months early.

It came in late Friday 4/4 & the service guys prepped it for me Saturday morning. I picked it up late Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately, I was only able to put about 250 miles on it so far, but at least I have a commuting vehicle again, and boy is it fun.

Early arrival IS a sweet surprise!

Congrats. And you were meant to have spokes anyways. :)

Mine was built yesterday, 4/8/2014, after a wait of about 3 weeks. Code 182 now, hopefully on its way to Bremerhaven to find a ship. Final destination is Bob's in Maryland. 4 weeks sound about right?

Isn't Onboard Computer Pro (221) part of the touring package (233)?

Hate to be the nay-sayer... but mine was built 01-02-14 and I took delivery 03-05-14. Granted there was especially bad weather in the NJ area for most of February which probably slowed it up quite a bit. YMMV -- hopefully much shorter for you!

I've got an Olive one that arrived in port Saturday and should be coming to Texas today. First GS for me, trading in a K1600 for it.

Ok, so my bike is in Bremerhaven and awaiting the OOCL KUALA LUMPUR, which will depart Germany this Saturday, 4/19.

Any other inmates have a bike on this boat?
